Hit combo Akkineni Nagarjuna and legendary director Raghavendra Rao teamed up yet again to weave magic again with another devotional outing Om Namo Venkateshaya. The film depicts the life history of saint follower Hathiram Baba, an ardent devotee of Lord Venkateswara Swamy. The film hit the screens today. Let’s see how it will be:


Om Namo Venkatesaya is a devotional and biographical film, which has been written by K Raghavendra Rao. The movie is based on the life of Hathiram Bhavaji, who was an ardent devotee of Lord Venkaestwara. The director has weaved an interesting screenplay, which is engaging and entertaining.

Positive Aspects:

Om Namo Venkatesaya is an effectively made on one of the greatest Lord venkateswara devotees hathiram bhavaji. Devotional Songs and its picturization is too good. Nag’s finest performance, Sourabh Raj Jain as Lord Venkateswara are major assets.

Pragya Jaiswal, Anushka acted well. Brahmanandam, Aditya Menon, Rao Ramesh, Raghu Babu, Pruthviraj and Vimala are also good assets of the movie

Jagapatibabu appears in a surprise special role. K.Raghavendra rao deserves a big thumps up for sticking to the core story. He explains significance of Swami vari sesha vasthram, Agni teerdham and Nitya Kalyanam etc rituals easily understandable for current generation. Production values are good.

M M Keeravani‘s songs and background score, S Gopal Reddy‘s camera work, Gautham Raju’s editing, beautiful art works and costumes are the main attractions on the technical front.

Negative Aspects:

The comedy quotient is too less in the film. The overdose of devotional touch may not go well with few sections of audiences. The lengthy run time is also drawback of the film.


Om Namo Venkatesaya is a must watch for devotees and a decent watch for all. This film will remains as the career performance of Nagarjuna.
